Okay, now this is pretty awesome.
Where honestly, I wish that they would have thought of this sort of thing when I was in school. I mean, I was a voracious reader in high school, but it took quite a bit of effort to get me too that point. Where in elementary school, it was a challenge getting me to read a book by myself and especially out loud.
Admittedly, I also always wanted a dog growing up. So this could have been a good excuse for such, with the mental issues I had to work with counting Asperger's Syndrome. A therapy dog could have perhaps helped me quite a bit, whether it be in simply helping me to focus and pay attention, or even minimize or better handle stresses.
